TOP GUN BANTAM

Welcome to the Top Gun Hockey Skills powered by MAP South Hockey.

This Program for Bantams each day will feature 3 on ice components: skating, puck skills, and competition/small area games.  We will also cover checking and body contact/proper positioning throughout the program as it is important for players of all ages to be comfortable with the physical aspect of the game – both taking and receiving physical contact.  The key to all of our training will be high repetition drills in order to build muscle memory and increase the speed and accuracy with which these skills are developed and performed.

The training will be 3 days a week: Tuesday and Thursday training at historic West St Paul Ice Arena and Sundays at Saint Thomas Ice Arena. The structure utilized will focus on:
